Suge Knight Arrested for Hit and Run On Suspicion of Murder

By Robert Kahn on January 30, 2015 - Comments off

LA Hit and Run LawyerFamous rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight has been arrested after he allegedly drove over two men after a dispute in Compton. He is currently being held on $2 million bail.

Knight arrived at Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department West Hollywood with his lawyer at approximately 12:30 a.m. so that homicide detectives could question him

Apparently, the argument began at approximately 3 p.m. on Thursday when Suge Knight started arguing with two men on the set of “Straight Outta Compton,” which is a biographical movie about the rap group N.W.A., the Sheriff’s Department stated.

Twenty minutes after the alleged dispute, it is believed that Knight followed the men and drove over them in the parking lot. Witnesses have claimed that the truck hit the two men and backed over them again before the driving away.

One victim died and the other suffered injuries, according to Capt. John Corina of the Sheriff’s Department.

Victims of hit and run traffic accidents can legally seek compensation from the negligent party for their injuries in a civil action, as well as being subject to criminal liability. An injured person could recover damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and damages to their property. If someone died during the accident, this could be grounds for a wrongful death claim as well. It is also possible that the victim in the hit and run accident recover punitive damages.
